Police have appealed for the public’s help as they continue to investigate a crash that took the life of a woman in Bradwell.

On Tuesday, Feburary 13, a female pedestrian died in hospital after being involved in a collision with a black Yamaha motorcycle on Beccles Road.

The woman was aged in her 60s and was dressed in a khaki-green hooded coat at the time of the incident. She was taken to the James Paget University Hospital where she died.

The male motorcyclist, who was aged in his 50s, sustained minor injuries in the collision, which happened shortly after 6.30am close to the former Arches pub site.

A spokesman for Norfolk Police said: “Officers are keen to hear from anyone who may have witnessed the collision, particularly anyone who saw the woman or the driving manner of the motorcyclist prior to the incident.”

Anybody with information should contact PC Martyn Holmes at the serious collision investigation team at Wymondham on 101.
